Dear Friends and Parishioners.   

We are still in lock down, but we are hoping that with the possibility of schools opening, our church also will be allowed to open. Ash Wednesday is still in lock down mode, so we are allowed 10 people in Church. From 8:40am till 5:30pm we will be offering services for Ashes and Holy Communion. Volunteers will be at the door to direct traffic. Please cooperate gently as we want to make sure that everybody is safe. This year ashes will be sprinkled ON YOUR HEAD so the minister will not touch your forehead. We are praying for a better protocol for PALM SUNDAY and HOLY WEEK.

 HAPPY VALENTINE DAY – This year it will be the year of VIRTUAL HUGS and Chocolate boxes. At least we can wish all a great LOVING relationship in your family. For all those who are alone, I send you my virtual hug!

LENT IS UPON US – Wednesday, February 17, we will celebrate ASH WEDNESDAY, the beginning of the important LENTEN SEASON. Yes, we will repent, but this year we want to live together a LOVELY LENT. Every morning we will start saying: Good Morning Jesus; Good Morning Mary and then you give a kiss to your spouse (or the closest to you). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSxLcUD19_uw_8E6q0JUXKQ
